Hello everyone. I hope you had a good week. It's been a busy week for me. Last weekend I went shopping for a dress to wear to our son Mark's wedding in Septemeber. After trying several on I did manage to buy one. I can't believe how expensive they are! Then again anything 'wedding' related seems to have that higher price tag attached. Now I just have to find shoes and a clutch.
My card today, is a card I made for Father's Day. I have since made a few more for a card order I'm working on, and made them as Thank You cards.
I used a Penny Black image called Shade Canopy.
I started with some Canson water colour paper, sponged some tumbled glass distress ink all over then placed it in my MISTI. I think inked my image using Peeled Paint distress markers, spritz and close the Misti to stamp. I then added a bit of Forest Moss distress marker and bit of gathered twigs- spritz and stamp. I then trimmed it down to the size I wanted, then layered this onto a piece of black card stock.
I put it back in the MISTI, lined up the sentiment using the graph guide, then stamped using black versafine. I stamped the sentiment a couple of times to get a nice crisp black image.
I used a couple of different flag stax dies to make the embellishment in the corner using scrap pieces of designer papers. Added a pewter stick on brad.
